In the overview, click on the "plus sign" at Domains.
In the expanded overview, click on the "Domain settings" button on the right-hand side of the domain that is to be released for a provider change.
In the next screen you will find "Advanced settings" in the lower area. If you see "On" at domain lock, click on "Edit" at this point.
... and switch the domain lock "Off".
The last step is to click on the text "Request authorization code" on the right.
The authorization code will now be sent to you by e-mail.
After you have received the authcode, you can start the transfer of the domain via the order process on www.checkdomain.net/en .
Important: For some domain extensions, such as .com/.net/.org or most nTLDs, an additional confirmation of the transfer is required in a so-called FOA e-mail, which is sent to the domain holder / admin-c.
